What is a Hospitalist?
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of inpatients at hospitals. Our hospitalists will work in conjunction with your primary care doctor and specialists to design and oversee your individualized treatment plan. Because they remain on-site, hospitalists are always available to address urgent issues and share information with you. To learn more, please see page 6 of your Patient Care Guide which is located in your blue folder. Meet our team of hospitalists!
Will I see the same hospitalist every day?
If you have an extended hospital stay, it is likely that you will see more than one hospitalist. The hospitalists work as a team and coordinate patient care each day to make sure information is shared and updated. Hospitalists are on patient floors daily from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Physicians are also on-site 24/7 in the event of an emergency.
